Abstract: Knowledge-based multilingual language processing benefits from having access to correctly es-
tablished relations between semantic lexicons, such as the links between different WordNets.
WordNet linking is a process that can be sped up by the use of computational techniques. Manual
evaluations of the partly automatically established synonym set (synset) relations between Dutch
and English in Cornetto, a Dutch lexical-semantic database associated with the EuroWordNet
grid, have confronted us with a worrisome amount of erroneous links. By extracting transla-
tions from various bilingual resources and automatically assigning a confidence score to every
pre-established link, we reduce the error rate of the existing equivalence relations between both
languages’ synsets (section 2). We will apply this technique to reuse the connection of Sclera
and Beta pictograph sets and Cornetto synsets to Princeton WordNet and other WordNets, allow-
ing us to further extend an existing Dutch text-to-pictograph translation tool to other languages
(section 3).
